Event description

Description

Brain fog is the common term for changes in cognitive function that often result from cancer and its treatment. Many cancer patients experience decreased memory, shorter attention spans, more difficulty solving problems and reduced ability to multi-task. Wellspring’s Brain Fog Program developed by Heather Palmer (PhD Neuropsychology), provides education, enlightenment and practical strategies for dealing with the challenging aspects of post cancer brain change. In this presentation Greg Lucier will discuss current thinking regarding Brain Fog, provide an overview of the Brain Fog Program and demonstrate how simple techniques taught in the program can help alleviate the stress and apprehension associated with this vexing problem.

Facilitator: Greg Lucier, PhD

Greg is an Emeritus Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Medicine. A past president and a member of the Founding Board of Wellspring Calgary, he is passionately committed to this organization and to the philosophies of health and healing. Greg draws on his extensive knowledge of non-western practices of medicine, including traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, to expand the potential for recovery and wellness.
